NEW YORK (AP) New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has undergone surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist and is expected to be in a hard cast for two to three months.

The team says Thursday that Revis will be limited during the offseason program, but is expected to be fully recovered for training camp in late-July.

Revis, selected for his seventh Pro Bowl last season, had soreness in the wrist that lingered after the season. Examinations revealed a torn ligament that required surgery. It is uncertain when the injury occurred.

Revis, 30, had five interceptions last year in his return to the Jets after playing one season in Tampa Bay and then helping New England win the Super Bowl in February 2015.
